day 644 – closing in

image

getting closer to competition means more cramming to be done. while that needs to be done, i still must be really cautious cause my groin has still has yet to heal, which exemplifies how badly i had pulled it two months back. hoping with a little help from my friend ben, it will not affect my left sidekick too much. this is usually the time i start to feel the urgency and my stress level is soaring exponentially

day 637 – photoshoot

image

practicing posing, sidekick and front snap kicks are amongst the many things i did tonight. playing around with some ultra expensive toys and lens that easily surpasses the triple digit mark. we were just having some fun casually kicking around and playing with lighting and angles. it was a night where i can set aside the pressures of preparing for competition, but must be extra careful not to overkill my legs and groin. the camera setup was super ghetto based on the resources we were given. i guess that’s what makes the photoshoot even more amazing

day 583 – pre comp syndrome

image

at the school the night before competition doing some very last minute cramming. soreness finally easing off and i am finally able to do my full poomsae for the first time in a long time. it might be a little too late because i feel the pre competition crisis taking over. one side of my sidekick is very concerning but i know i need rest so i don’t overdo it. so i will just call it a day and hope that when i wake up tomorrow morning everything will be back to normal

day 336 – post competition

top pick for competition action picture is our team taebaek during the opening ceremony demo. pretty good and synchronized considering we winged it without much practice, that’s when you know we are a team. still ways to go to match my once best kick but pleased for someone who’s been struggling to walk in recent weeks and literally kicking for the first time in over a month. glad to know i still got it in me
